Hi! I personally use Simple Green on my van. I have used it for years. You can even clean carpets with it. It makes tires cleaner than any carwash detergent I have ever used. Plus, its concentrated, so just a little in a bucket of water is all you need. I spray it undiluted on the tires and rims tho. Also, its harmless to the environment!

Is it safe to use dawn liquid dish soap on cars?

NO but i do anyways and the paint on my bumper is peeling off now i wouldn't. it may be because the bumper is made of plastic thoANSWER:Dishwashing detergent is a low level caustic detergent and is probably the best thing you can use as soap for your car. RULE #1 for washing cars is using "car soap"... NOT DISH WASHING DETERGENT. it may make your car germ free, but who has the money to re-wax their car every time they wash their car. it's made to cut through grease so you better believe its going to take the wax right off (even with a poorly done wash job) then your car is unprotected, so i think it's safe to say that it's NOT safe on your car...if you're like me and don't wax or care about your cars paint job because its not a Benz or BMW then go ahead and drizzle it all over your hood to get the love bugs off lol but don't come crying to me when your paint starts bleaching because you took the wax off that was protecting your clear coat which was protecting your paint.
